Insurer to offer streamlined online interface

Insurer to offer streamlined online interface Vero is to offer an online interface for brokers to streamline the writing of home and motor policies, it has been announced.

The insurer has said that the launch comes thanks to increasing demand from brokers to streamline a process that has become convoluted.

The streamlining process can automatically link the writing of home and motor policies to business management systems and will remove the need for re-keying or re-entering data as brokers can opt in to be linked to the Sunrise Exchange.

A Vero spokesperson told Insurance Business of the changes: “This is designed to make it easy for brokers to use our home and motor tool with their broker management systems. They will no longer have to re-enter information into their systems after using the tool, the data will be automatically integrated via Sunrise.”

“Brokers can opt-in to use Sunrise by contacting their Vero BDM. Their policies will be moved to Sunrise once they are renewed.

“Those brokers who prefer to access the tool via Vero Central can still do this. Brokers can choose which system best suits their needs.”

The opt in option is being offered to brokers in either November or January and the insurer have said that Sunrise will then be in contact with brokers in a bid to update their business management systems.

Vero hopes that the streamlining move will reduce potential errors and will help to expedite transactions and make the entire transaction process simpler.

Once connected to the system, existing polices will automatically transition to the Sunrise system on their next renewal.

    Funny about that... Vero moved off Sunrise and now with the impending doom of Berkshire Hathaway writing Steadfast broker clients they are finally listening to brokers who have been complaining about this stupid decision for years.

    Wow!! Vero took us off Sunrise 2-3 years ago, its taken them all this time to put us back on. This is not new, its just that Vero got it wrong.

    For a company that keeps telling brokers that they listen to and value feedback this just proves that they don't really listen at all. Or if they do listen then it takes them a long time to face up and admit they made a mistake 3 or 4 years ago when they took brokers off Sunrise.

    Maybe the problem is Snowballs hearing was affected by all the noise when he was driving tanks for the British Army before he came to Australia

    This is sort of similar to when they decided to get rid of all their General Insurance AR's, only to then buy AMP GI and re-enter the AR market via Relisum.

    ! must be getting close to time Snowball returned to UK and went back to something he was good at, Driving Army Tanks !
